Just weeks ago, House Squeaker Nancy Pelosi repeated her stand that she did not think impeaching President Donald Trump was a good idea and that she had no intention of bringing impeachment charges against Trump.
That was after Attorney General William Barr announced that Special Counsel Robert Mueller found no evidence on which to charge Trump with any crimes.
Then Trump-hating Mueller made his first public statement in 2 years, re-igniting the impeachment fires.
Even though Barr refuted Mueller’s public claim that he was not allowed to charge Trump with any crimes, Pelosi had done an about face and has announced that she will provide an ironclad case against Trump.
The Hill – Pelosi promises ‘ironclad case’ against Trump – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told California Democrats that Congress would continue aggressive investigations into President Trump and the Trump administration, stopping short of calling for the beginning of an impeachment inquiry.
Addressing the California Democratic Party’s annual convention in her home district, Pelosi cited former special counsel Robert Mueller‘s report into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential
“In his report, special counsel Mueller warned us in the starkest terms that there was an attack on our election and an attack on our democracy,” Pelosi said. “Why won’t the president defend us from this attack?”
“What is the president covering up?” she asked. “We must investigate the president’s welcoming of the assault on our democracy…
The question Pelosi should be asking is why Barack Obama did nothing about the attack on our election and democracy when he knew about it for months before the election?
If doing nothing about Russia’s election interference, then the blame needs to be placed squarely in the lap of Obama, not Trump.
As for an attack on America’s democracy, that’s all Obama did for 8 years.
The only thing Trump is guilty of is trying to repair and restore the damage inflicted by Obama and the Democrats, including Pelosi.
